Customers should be aware that mail to the Liverpool area may be subject to delays. This is due to unofficial strike action. Around 100 staff at Liverpool's main delivery centre have walked out in a dispute over the withdrawal of redundancy offers and working conditions. Mail to the Liverpool 1 and Liverpool 3 postcode districts are likely to be subject to delays during this time.

Royal Mail has recently launched some new stamps which feature  ten of our endangered indigenous mammals. The stamps which were launched on the 13th of April feature the humpback whale, wildcat, brown long eared bat, polecat, sperm whale, water vole, greater horseshoe bat, otter, dormouse and hedgehog. The stamps are being backed by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust which has seen some success with its conservation programs providing better protection for otters in their local area.

Passengers flying with Ryanair over the summer holidays will find they are paying a little more for their bags as the airline raises its fees. They will now be charged £20 for every bag they check in, an increase of £5. The fee will apply to all booking made for travel during July and August and the fee will reduce to £15 again from September. In addition to this the airline has recently announced that it will charge customers to use the toilet. All onboard toilets will now become operated and passengers will need to pay £1 or one Euro for the privilege of using them. The airline is also cutting the number of toilets available on its flights meaning there will now only be one toilet per plane of 189 passengers.
